Everything You Need to Know About Us

Welcome to the Rockwall Christian Writers Group!

Mission Statement: To encourage fellow writers in the pursuit of publication while striving for the highest writing standards and to maintain our integrity and goal of glorifying God in all that we do.

Schedule: We will meet the fourth Monday of every month in Room W-214 of LakePointe Church (701 E. Interstate 30, Rockwall) from 7:00-9:30 P.M.


Approximately half of the time will be spent sharing/networking with one another about the following:

· Overviews of what we have been writing
· Industry information (who has merged, who is looking for what)
· Valuable websites
· Tools for writers (books, pamphlets, and other resources)
· Agent and publisher information and contacts
· Suggestions for getting published, marketing when published, etc.

The other half of our time together will be spent reading our work aloud and offering a helpful critique including:

· Proof-reading for errors
· Evaluation of style (both positive and negative)
· Suggestions for changes in the margins

Please bring any resources you wish to share as well as any work you want critiqued (up to 5 pages double-spaced with at least one-inch margins). We will hand out copies to everyone who comes, so be sure to have at least six copies of your work.

Membership information: There are no dues (at this point) or membership requirements (attendance, preparation) other than a love of writing. Just show up when it is convenient for you and encourage your fellow writers when you do. I would like to put together a roster with basic information, especially e-mail addresses, so please sign in.

Note: Please publicize this group to whomever you wish. As we grow we can better serve the individual needs of our members. Just to let you know, your work need not be Christian in nature, but rather, we want to provide a place for Christians to share information and critique work without being offended by the nature of work submitted for review.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this group, please contact Leslie Wilson at
